Portishead Juniors under-16s celebrated a 5-1 win in their first-ever match against their Portishead Town rivals.

Harri Battista opened the scoring on 12 minutes, with Jack Nattress netting a landmark 250th goal after good work by Ethan Monks.

Town hit back before the break, but Nattress and Jack Brand replied after the restart after assists from Battista and Monks.

And George Turner completed the scoring from the penalty spot to mark the end of an era for manager Jason Monks and head coach Stan Nattress after seven league seasons in charge, which saw the team win five league titles and three cups and go almost three years unbeaten.
